David HONEYBOY Edwards – R.I.P.

HONEYBOYDescribing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “

ROBERT JOHNSON – how many graves ?

I may be one of the very few who actually believes he lies buried in Quito, MS ~  in the cemetery plot area his step-brother owned .. and where I believe a few of his other step- siblings lay as well  ~ (he had ten)   

  • In 1990 a small marker with the epitaph “Resting in the Blues” was placed in the cemetery of Payne Chapel near Quito, Mississippi by an Atlanta rock group named the Tombstones, after they saw a photograph in Living Blues magazine of an unmarked spot alleged by one of Johnson’s ex-girlfriends to be Johnson’s burial site.
ROBERT JOHNSON may be buried here
